Asset CD

Mile Nasta (MHS Class '07) is producing a student developed hip-hop CD focused on the 40 developmental assets. Students in local schools and after school programs will develop songs that will have a general assets-based theme to them (e.g. What do you want to be when you grow up? or a dedication to an important adult in their lives). Every aspect of the CD will be developed by Middletown youth, from the lyrics, beats, and raps, to the cover art and promotionial materials. The project received initial support through a grant from the Middletown Commission on the Arts and has since received additional funding from the Middletown Substance Abuse Prevention Council.
